Even on FOX we have Neal Gabler, the Durbin affirmer, with his sardonic grin coupled to the body language of an all-knowing, disapproving matron.

These are not decent people which is why the true decent folk of middle America keep rejecting them. It is not because thy have failed to present their "message" properly. America has looked into their eyes and seen what the "message" has done to them and America does not want to become Teddy Kennedy, James Carville, Neal Gabler, Howard Dean, Dick Durbin, Nancy Pelosi, Babs Boxer, etc. etc. etc.
God save the Republic from the "message"!
